Breaking news - Balsall Common Primary pupils 'safe and on coach home'

PUPILS from Balsall Common Primary School – who were on a visit to Parliament when today’s terrorist atrocities unfolded – are safe and on a coach on their way home – it has been reported.

The youngsters were on a trip to Westminster when the terrorist struck – killing three people and injuring 20 others.

The terrorist was shot dead by armed police shortly after killing a police officer outside Westminster and having ploughed through innocent victims on the nearby bridge.

When The Observer contacted the school earlier, they were unable to comment.

BBC Radio Five Live reported just before 6pm that some schoolchildren, who had been inside Westminster were being led to safety.

It is not confirmed whether or not the Balsall Common Primary pupils were those being discussed.

What is now being reported is that all the children are now safely on their way home.
